Last Friday was the opening of a new exhibit in the Artist Hall at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft – Detritus. Jim & I were able to volunteer that evening for the positions of bartender and “gallery guard”. Scheduled for this week was the annual Volunteer Appreciation party which we would not be able to attend. So on Friday, I was both surprised and very flattered to be presented with the HCCC Volunteer of the Year Award. What an unexpected honor.
I have really enjoyed the time spent here. The staff is a great bunch to work with and there are always fun and interesting activities to help with. The exhibitions continue to be interesting and often thought provoking. I look forward to my continuing volunteer time here and want to thank everyone for this honor.
P.S. In additon to a commerative plaque, I also received a gift certificate from Asher Gallery (where they have fabulous gift items) and an HCCC personalized apron. I can’t tell you how much we all lusted for those aprons when they were first brought into service for the Family Day event this year. Now I have my very own!
